Jeff B. Davis : biography

October 6, 1973 -

Jeffrey Bryan "Jeff" Davis (born October 6, 1973) is an American actor, comedian and singer. He is most famous as a guest star on the improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway?

He also appeared in Drew Carey's Green Screen Show as one of the major actors. In 2011, Davis appeared on Drew Carey's game show, Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza. He was also known for doing impressions of several actors, most notably Christopher Walken, Keanu Reeves, and Jeff Goldblum on the shows.

Career

Davis began performing with various improv troupes. He also worked with the short video website Channel 101.com and was in the Dan Harmon series Laser Fart. Soon after, he landed a recurring role on the improv series Whose Line Is It Anyway?. His comedic timing won over comedian Steve Martin and the other producers of The Downer Channel, earning Davis a spot in the cast of the comedy sketch/reality series in 2001. He also has appeared in the television series The Norm Show, The Drew Carey Show and The Jamie Kennedy Experiment. Davis appeared in the acclaimed telefilm Tuesdays With Morrie and was a series regular in Happy Family, opposite Christine Baranski and John Larroquette, in the fall of 2003. He played the role of an attorney in the October 9, 2008 episode of The Sarah Silverman Program. Davis also regularly appears as a guest on the Superego podcast, where he has impersonated Sam Elliot.

Davis currently resides in Los Angeles and he has toured on the "The Improv All Stars" alongside fellow Whose Line Is It Anyway stars Drew Carey, Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Chip Esten, Brad Sherwood, Kathy Greenwood and Greg Proops. Davis has also been part of two USO tours and tours with Stiles, Esten and Proops doing live shows in various cities across the US and Canada. He was often used in games that required improvisational singing and usually partnered with Wayne Brady on Whose Line and Esten on Drew Carey's Green Screen Show or live tours. He still performs live improv shows with Esten, Proops and Stiles under the name Whose Live Anyway? and they regularly tour around the country and Canada.

Davis was one of the rotating announcers on television's longest running game show The Price Is Right after Rich Fields's departure. Davis often modeled prizes (prizes oriented towards men such as watches, men's clothing, and occasionally a musical instrument are usually modeled by the announcer) and participated in games where the model traditionally participates (when only two models are available). However, George Gray eventually got the job.
